We are traveling to Punta Cana for the first time the last week in August. I have a few questions if anyone could help that would be great!
Ive read where it's really hot in August is it humid as well? I know Mexico it is hot and humid and along with that comes mosquitoes too. Are the bugs bad around that time?
Is it worth upgrading to Exhale Club? We are booking our room this weekend through Cheap Caribbean. We had planned on booking the Allure room then possibly upgrading once we arrived if there are rooms available. Its an extra $200 per person if we do it now does anyone know how much it is to upgrade upon arrival? Are the amenities that much better? We prefer the beach to the pool so I like the fact the there are rooms close. How easy is it to request a room close to the beach even if we go with the Allure room ?
How is the cell reception there? We always get on a international plan to use our cell phones when going out of the country. I like to get online and still catch up on what is going on in good ole Indiana and other parts of the US while enjoying some coffee. I know if we book Exhale we get complimentary wifi how does it work with the Allure rooms?
Are the jacuzzi's only on the balcony of the Exhale Club rooms?
Are the restaurants all spread out or are they pretty close together? We are used to staying at large resorts where yo have to take a golf cart or trolley to get to some of the restaurants.
Is it safe to go off of the resort? Ive read many different opinions about this. My husband doesnt see the point of going to an AI resort and leaving. I would like to try at least one well known restaurant while we are there...if we decide to do that what is the best place to try?!?!
Thanks so much for any help!!
